Back in August of 2019 drag artists Barbie Q and Raquel Ita made headlines. They were going to be doing a highly controversial Drag Queen Storytime at the Civic Center Library Chula Vista. 

The performance went on amid protest, but in the end, it was a great success. 

Now Barbie Q and Raquel Ita are back, this time at the Lux Art Institute in Encinitas for Family Art Day. 

Drag Queen Storytime is a children's event performed by these artists, who are also educators, to inspire a love of reading while teaching deeper lessons of building an equally diverse and inclusive society.

Lux Art Institute is inviting children and their families to participate in hands-on projects, storytelling, and the current exhibition of our Artists-in-Residence, Argentine duo, Chiachio & Giannone.

This event is free for all-ages and open to the public.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Saturday, March 7th, 10 am - 12 pm

Free Admission

Seating is limited

Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA 92024
